Nicole Kidman encourages her children to daydream.

The 45-year-old actress has always enjoyed indulging her imagination and in the busy world we now live in, Nicole thinks it's important for her kids - Sunday Rose, four, and Faith Margaret, two - to have time to just relax and have ''creative time''.

Speaking at the launch of OMEGA's new Ladymatic watch in Vienna, Austria, on Saturday (23.03.13), she said: ''I'm still a huge believer in daydreaming. I love lying around with no book or anything - just having my mind. I used to do it as a kid and I still do it. When I do, it's when I come up with ideas. It's creative time and it's something I try to create for my children. We tend to schedule so much for our children and I try not to do that.''

The 'To Die For' star - who is married to Keith Urban - has been working as an actress since she was 14 and her three-decade career has instilled in her a strong sense of punctuality.

Speaking to Britain's Grazia magazine, she explained: ''I like to have my own watch on - I don't want to be asking other people what time it is. Working in the film industry as a child, you learn to be on time. I was taught a very strong work ethic that included punctuality, which I've always felt is a sign of respect for others.''
